Ricoffy Scones with a Secret Ingredient

Makes: 20

Hands-on time: 15 minutes

Hands-off time: 20 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS
 

3 tbsp NESCAFÉ Ricoffy

3 cups cake flour, plus extra for dusting

1 tbsp baking powder
3 tbsp NESTLÉ Cremora Original

1 cup (250ml) low-fat plain yoghurt

½ cup sparkling water

 

Serving suggestion:

Low-fat yoghurt

Fresh strawberries, quartered

 

METHOD
 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

  2. In a small bowl, mix the NESCAFÉ Ricoffy with 1 tablespoon of hot water until the coffee is dissolved. Set aside to cool.

  3. Sieve the flour, baking powder and NESTLÉ Cremora Original into a large mixing bowl. *Chef’s Tip: Add a pinch of salt for extra flavour!

  4. Spoon the yoghurt into the dry ingredients.

  5. Add in the cooled coffee and sparkling water and mix until just combined. *Chef’s Tip: Do not overmix as this can result in a tough dough.

  6. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently pat down to a 2.5cm thickness. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut the scones. *Chef’s Tip: If you don’t have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out a heart-shaped template on cardboard, place it on the dough and cut around the shape using a sharp knife.

  7. Carefully transfer the heart-shaped scones onto the baking tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the top is golden.

  8.  Allow to cool slightly. Serve at tea-time with yoghurt and fresh strawberries and ENJOY! *Chef’s Tip: These scones make for the perfect Mother’s Day treat!
